District Students Excel at Solar Sprint Competition

Congratulations to East Rockaway’s fifth- and sixth-grade Enterprise students for their participation in the 2016 Junior Solar Sprint Competition on June 6.

The Junior Solar Sprints program is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) competition that engages students to design, build and race solar-powered model cars. The program also adheres to the Next Generation Science Standards. The Enterprise students raced their solar vehicles alongside a total of 24 teams in the competition. Congratulations to East Rockaway’s first-place winners Louis DeSano, Mark DiLapi, Colin Sharkey and Luke Tasca; and second-place winners Clare Acuti, Madeleine Prucha and Safiya Lawrence.
